The Dallas Morning News: Michael Boone sidestepped 'arrogance and greed' to keep law firm thriving
10/17/2011

Later this month, Dallas attorney Michael Boone will travel to New York to receive The American Lawyer’s Distinguished Leader Award, recognizing the 70-year-old co-founder of Haynes and Boone LLP for his steadfast devotion to community service.

It’s just the third time in eight years of giving out lifetime achievement awards that the well-known trade publication has singled out an attorney for distinguished leadership — and the first time it has chosen a Texan.

Former Vice President Walter Mondale, who ran for president in 1984, will be among the other recipients.

Boone will tell the black-tie gathering that he’s accepting the honor for the 1,000-plus attorneys and staffers at Haynes and Boone who should be standing there with him.

He’ll mean every word.
